wheel suggestions?

Im looking to get a set of wheels for my KK. Can't say that I have had any luck finding ones I thought would look good on my Jeep. I am looking to stay with the stock rim size. Any thoughts out there? Thanks!

Well I just fit a 265/85r16 on my front driver side, but I have a 4" lift. It should work fine with some rub on flex/compression.

BUT gearing is seems to be a big issue so I did not get them yet.

Going up one size 245/75r16 (30.5") with stock at 29.3" shouldn't be in issue maybe slower when towing.

Going up two sizes needs gearing thou I have heard of a few people that did not re-gear for a few months as they where always going to but just did not all happen at the same time.

A 245/75r16 should fit without a lift with some rubbing.

The same tire in a mud tire would be slightly bigger about .25" but look better.
